Geography (Ms. Sue) - These are my final questions
posted by Anonymous .
1). What are examples of an environment changed by humans?
2). How has industrialization hurt the forests of Europe?
A: Industrialization has damaged the forests of Europe as Europe's factories produce high amounts of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, which, combined with water vapor and oxygen, forms acid rain or snow, causing extreme damage to the forests. Industrialization has also harmed the forests of Europe due to air population from factories and deforestation.
3). Where are the most important oil fields of Europe located, and which countries pump oil from them?
A: The most important oil fields of Europe are located beneath the North Sea floor. Norway, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Denmark pump oil from them.
4). Why did the Dutch build seaworks?
A: The Dutch built seaworks to control the sea's destructive impact on human life.
1. Look around you. Think about what your area looked like hundreds of years ago. What has changed about your area in the last several hundred years?
4. Why does the sea have a destructive impact in the Netherlands?
4). A: The Dutch built seaworks, which included dikes and high earthen platforms called terpen to hold back the sea, while the terpen provided places to go for safety during floods and high tides?
4. The Netherlands is mostly below sea level. If the Dutch and built the dikes and platforms, their country would be under water.
What about number 1?
Polders and building upon islands are examples od an environment changed by humans?
I'm disappointed in you. You haven't answered my question about the changes in YOUR environment caused by humans.
You don't live in the Netherlands.
Please look around outside tomorrow. What do you see that wasn't there before people came into your valley?
I'll expect your answer tomorrow.
